    You can use Cleaner 6 from Discreet...

    remember that asf is the Windows Media container and as such is not really designed for editing in iMovie (Before I get shouted at I know Windows Movie Maker can handle windows media for editing but afaik it's only 9 series codecs. and its wintel anyway)

    Cleaner may be your best route to convert or "transcode" your clips into quicktime or a DV stream.

    Play it from one Mac/PC and record it from the line-in on another Mac/PC. Use Sound Studio or Garageband to record for the Mac. You can use one machine but you won't hear anything as you record but you can at least see the progress bar reaching the end after it finishes playing.

    I bought cleaner 6 too. It's faster and you can have batches.
